: that is interesting. the president campaigned keeping the economy going. improving it. spreading the benefits to the middle class. immigration reform and energy reform. then newtown happened and that wasn't part of his agenda for the second term. then newtown happened and by all signs the president was deeply and personally moved. one of the reasons i suspect you can see there just to, standing to the left of them the fatherf two young daughters and the idea of these 20 young schoolchildren having been unabouted down i'm sure hit him very bern p personally. he decided to make that a huge issue in this campaign or rather in his second administration. it will be interesting to see. one of the things people say you don't want to overload the agenda but in addition everything he wants to do and obviously the debt and deficit he will have several battles with congress over that but gun control, he will try to take advantage newtown has happened and perhaps caused a tippingpoint in public attitudes and he will push that very aggressively. shepard: senator chuck schumer, the chairman of joint congr

and nancy pelosi in december of 2007. he said the economy is slipping, i need a stimulus and they worked with him to give him the kind he can sign. then 2008, the terrible crisis and it was a very partisan thing in which the bush administration got more support from democrats and republicans in the final vote. then comes the election of barack obama and mitch mcconnell's announcement that his number one agenda item is to defeat president obama. we have, i think, a productive 2009 and 2010 and then in 2010, a group gets elected in the house, in particular, we don't believe in governance. not totally pessimistic. the way to go we've seen in the last three major issues in the house, a split within the republican party where main stream conservatives of the bob dole variety have aligned with the majority of democrats. they've been opposed by a majority of republicans in the house, but not of the whole house and speaker boehner, to his credit, has been allowing a coalition to come together and i hope what happens is that the main stream conservativism of the republican party continue to fight
to do. but he needs to get to work. and the number one problem is the economy. he's got to fix the economy. the fiscal situation has been fixed, to a large extent. the stock market's doubled. that's pretty good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st century america. his focus has to be on the economy. on the need to reduce unemployment. and frankly, i hope he can, through his own example, restore a sense of civility in the country. >> every president learns a lot. is scarred by the office. also made more wise by the office. what is the one thing you hope president obama has learned over the last four years? >> i hope he's learned that you know, no one part of the government, really, gets it all done. and so, he's got to do a better job of reaching out to members of congress, across both -- across the aisle, to the republicans. and the republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. why aren't republican leaders shouting out about all thi
lawmakers accountable for what they're doing or not doing to the economy. i am the network's chief business correspondent in addition to anchoring the show. it's a title i earned covering economies and businesses and stock marks around the world. you can see me do that every weekday morning on a show called "world business today." next week, i'll be talking to some of the smartest most powerful minds in business who have an impact on your prosperity. let me show you where i'm going. davos is in the eastern part of squitser land in the swiss alps. it is the highest city in europe. a little more than 10,000 people live there, but every year some of the biggest names in business come in for the world economic for forum. it turns out to be the coldest place in europe and maybe the best place to take the temperature of the global economy. i'll be thousands of miles away but not going to forget about my job. my fox will be on what role the u.s. plays in the global economy and what 2013 is going to look like to the global business elite because their decisions will have an impact on investment and
the economy collapse. and in classic washington fashion, this is the case with the schoolhouse is on fire and rather than focusing on putting the fire out, everyone in washington runs out to use as much water. the budget deficit is the economy right now. that's the to 50 minute like that but that's the truth. i think it would be great if an organization with strength and integrity of a or b. would stand up and make the point because we're having an entire budget that is basically premised on something that is not true. >> i agree with you. we do have underlying pieces of our economy that need to get fixed. but massive change in spending and we've already cut a trillion dollars over all in spending. we've cut medicare as part of the political their act. we have to be really careful and just solving these problems by cutting spending. .. >> we do it in a way that supports families and the population that we have. >> let me just add to that. i agree with you, but unfortunately, most of the people on social security will be on fixed budgets. and so there's still a danger having out-of-pocket
" live from the dubliner coming up. >>> the state of our economy calls for action bold and swift, and we will act, not only to create new jobs but to lay a new foundation for growth. we'll build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. we'll restore science to its rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's use and lower its cost. >> here we are four years later. why not come back to the dubliner? all you did too. my, lord. the line goes around the block. a wonderful, joyful crowd. thank you all for coming. joining us now with the politico playbook, the politico executive director jim. >> i'm always a dose of sunshine in the morning. you guys were talking about ted cruz and his comments on gun control. i think what people need to realize, ted cruz is a mainstream republican with this senate and this house. his views, he's not on the conserveative edge of the party. that is the party. when you think about the budget, think about gun control -- >> saying the president exploited
and maybe win some election. and two, perhaps pushing wound after wound on the economy is really not what folks sent us here to do. >> and ryan, the funny thing about this, this can end up being perceived as some sort of republican cave when they never should have taken a party position against raising the debt ceiling in the first place. so that doing the rational thing could actually simply look rational when they chose to do it. >> right, exactly. they -- if they had never made a big deal about this to begin with then they wouldn't be in this situation. now, obama kind of aided and abetted them because he wanted it to be the debt ceiling leverage that he kind of wanted this grand bargain in 2011. that never happened. since then, he has been consistent saying i am not going to mess around with the debt ceiling anymore. and good for him on that, you're right. as newt gingrich said, wisely and moderately and reasonably, he said don't pick this fight because you're going to lose it. don't create a national crisis around this that will only wind up with you caving. so just do it quietly, ea
axelrod about some of the challenges the president will face. >> rebuilding the economy in which the american dream, the american compact is fresh where people who work hard feel like they can get ahead. that's not just about dealing with the fiscal crisis. it's about education, research and development, controlling our energy future. all of these are part of the equation, and we can't just do one piece of it. >> roughly 24 hours from now we will hear the president lay out some of those plans for the course of the next four years. david playofoffe, the president completed writing his remarks. now we just wait to hear what he has to say. >> and there were other active tifs involving the vice president. he was sworn in for a second time today. tell us about that. >> that took place about 8:20 this morning. he was sworn in by his choosing by the justice sonia sotomayor. a lot of people were asking why did that happen roughly 8:00 this morning. because the justice is actually on book tour right now. she had a previous commitment in new york. she had to hustle to a train to make that
. >> the president will either rise and fall about the economy. >> reporter: obama is off to a head start with his current approval rating higher than his first term average. but he still faces fights over gun control. and immigration reform. >> this is when presidents really get tested, when unexpected things happen and they have to react on the spot, in real time. we get to seat real character of a president. >> just 16 presidents have been elected to a second term, including some of the great ones. obama, the 17th, will now get his shot at greatness, or not. you know, both gentlemen agreed that tackling the economy was first priority. they said in order for president barack obama to leave the democratic party stronger, he has to pass immigration reform. that's what you were talking about a while ago. >> isn't that one of the big questions? is his goal his legacy? or is his goal a democratic legacy? >> one guy said within a year. have you a year to really make your mark. the other guy said maybe two years. >> get into the six-year itch in washington. soledad, the first key comes from the preside
it to be. >> the stalled economy, the another mountain to climb for the president. >> the overwhelming problem, the economy is one that president obama has said is still undone. that's his biggest challenge for term two. >> perhaps a sign of the times, the president's second inaugural is much smaller, ten inaugural balls for years ago. only two this time. tomorrow, what could be his last big chance to tell americans from coast to coast what he can do for them over the next four years. >>> of course, there are plenty of people around here who were not excited about this inauguration a lot of republicans are skipping town. neither president george w. bush nor his father, recently hospit hospit hospitalized with health problems, plan to attend. >> for more, let's bring in david gregory. tomorrow, the president will deliver his inaugural address. the first time around we typically hear optimistic, loft lofty, ideal speeches. what do you expect him to say tomorrow? >> i think he wants to talk about restoration of the american economy. i think about the first inaugural address and how crisis
and hatred. our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. homes have been lost, jobs shed, businesses shuttered. our healthcare is too costly costly and our schools fail too many. each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet. these are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. less measurable, but no less profound is a sapping of confidence across our land. a nagging fear that america owes the decline is inevitable, but the next generation must lower its sights. today i say to you that the challenges we face are real. they are serious and they are many. they will not be met easily or in a short span of time, that know this, america -- they will be met. [cheers and applause] on this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of her pace over conflict and discord. on this day we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recri
temperature of the global economy. i'll be thousands of miles away but not going to forget about my job. my fox will be on what role the u.s. plays in the global economy and what 2013 is going to look like to the global business elite because their decisions will have an impact on investment and job creation right here in the united states. if you've got questions you want me to ask, you're unclear how the u.s. fits into the global economy right now, hit me up before i go or while i'm there. and tune in here saturdays as the 1:00 p.m. eastern, suns at 3:00. thanks for joining the conversation here on "your $$$$$" and have a fantastic $$$$$" and have a fantastic weekend. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> a beautiful day on the national mall. hello, everyone. it's 2:00 on the east coast. 11:00 a.m. out west. thank you for joining us. i'm kate bolduan. >> i'm john berman. great to see you here today. we are live in washington, d.c., covering a huge event for this city and a huge event for the entire country. president barack obama's second inauguration. >> you can just see the
a great deal of work to be done on the economy and a great many other things. nora o'donnell, the co-anchor of "cbs this morning" is down on the national mall and she has insight on what the president is looking to in a second term. >> that's right. on a day like this when most americans have expressed their frustration with washington, political leaders, this is day that we see hundreds of thousands of americans turn out to witness this piece of history. every second-term president since dwight eisenhower has had to deal with an opposition party in congress. that's nothing new that president obama is facing in this second term. but he's going to try and capture i think some of the magic of bipartisanship on a day like today. trying to put it in a bottle. because he really has a very ambitious agenda for his second term. we have heard him talk about it. gun safety, immigration reform. deficit reduction and those looming spending cuts that are a part of the sequestration. so that's lot before the president. but as major has noted this is a speech today that's not about specifics, but
and undermine their idealism. if we permit our economy to drift and decline, the vulnerable will suffer most. we must live up to the calling we share. civility is not a tactic or a sentiment. it is the determined choice of trust over cynicism, of community over chaos. and this commitment, if we keep it, is a way to shared accomplishment. america, at its best, is also courageous. our national courage has been clear in times of depression and war, when defending common dangers defined our common good. now we must choose if the example of our fathers and mothers will inspire us or condemn us. we must show courage in a time of blessing by confronting problems instead of passing them on to future generations. together, we will reclaim america's schools, before ignorance and apathy claim more young lives. we will reform social security and medicare, sparing our children from struggles we have the power to prevent. and we will reduce taxes, to recover the momentum of our economy and reward the effort and enterprise of working americans. we will build our defenses beyond challenge, lest weakness invite
